TJ and Brutus were great host to our dog, Coava. Highly recommend them! Thanks for taking care of our little guy while we were gone. He had a great time!

TJ and Brutus were most welcoming and generous with Jules. It was like a doggie-retreat center! TJ was very conscientious about making sure we were a good match and this set the ground for an excellent base of trust and respect. He is knowledgable and patient. His own dog, Brutus, is very sweet and helped keep our dog calm and well-behaved. Solid communication and ease of drop off/pick up. Look forward to future stays!

Thank you! ??? Jules is a wonderfully loyal and enthusiastic pup. He may appear intimidating at first glance, but his main ...

TJ is an awesome caretaker! He did a fabulous job with Poppy. She was very cheerful and comfortable at his home. I know she had a great time while I was away. She also got along well with Brutus, TJ’s dog. Very thankful for his help!

ONEonONE-PrivatePARK!- Experienced!

Dog parents,

Have peace of mind knowing your furry companion is lounging comfortably in my low population townhouse with a private dog park located outside our front door. I only host one dog at a time either for boarding or daycare. My own companion, Brutus, will be ever-present if they may need anything.

I work from home everyday and can respond to any situation during your pups stay.

What TJ would like to know about your dog

*Please have your pup treated for fleas and ticks, this includes prevention treatment*
There is no need for a crate, because your pup is free to roam around in their large designated area. If your pup associates their crate as a place of comfort and refuge, then by all means, bring their crate and we can position it in the most pleasing way for your pup. Your dog must be amicable with other friendly canines. If your pup has special needs like daily medication or underlying ailment, this must be communicated so that proper allocation can be considered in order to respond to their need appropriately. If feeding services are needed, please let me know if your pup has shown any signs of aggression around food. This does not effect my decision to host them but merely informs me on how to execute their feeding style.
